Eastern Rivers and Mountains Network

The ERMN is one of 32 NPS I &M Networks across the country established to conduct baseline resource inventories and implement sustained natural resource monitoring. The ERMN is comprised of nine national park units, each of which contains a rich and varied array of natural and cultural resources. These parks and their partners are dedicated to understanding and preserving the region's unique resources through science and education. This web site delivers information about the ERMN, member parks, past inventories, ongoing monitoring, and current science products. Learn more about specific topics by exploring the links on the left or visit the park unit pages to discover the particular resources found at each of these special places.
